This is Camino

What a great cookbook...I really love a cookbook that I can sit in bed and read like a novel.  This is one of those books!  And, one that I will read, and cook from, over and over.....

I hadn't really heard of this restuarant; wait that's not true....I hadn't heard of this restaurant until I started seeing the cookbook and then it was as if my conscienciousness awoke and now I hear of Camino all the time! Next time that I am traveling for work and I happen to be in the same zip code, I will have a reservation at this gem! These guys (Russ and his wife Allison) primarily cook with an open flame.  I can only imagine the wonderful tastes that they are able to create!  The cookbook does have a section to teach how to cook with fire but the cookbook recognizes that home cooks do not have the tools (read a fireplace in the kitchen) that the restuarant does and so the cookbook gives you instructions on how to use your kitchen. 

The photos are sumptuous and yes, they make me want to build an outdoor spot to cook my hanging leg of lamb. Not sure what my HOA would say about that one! (but they might be enticed by aroma to a) join the party and b) let me keep my fire hole.  I know I'm dreaming on that one.

Seriously, though.  This cookbook is divided into various chapters:  veggies, fish, chicken & egg, duck, lamb, port, dessert, and cocktail!  All you need to have a fabulous feast!  As a little extra, the authors even threw in a chapter on 'a week at camino' so all of us wannabes can pretend we are a little part of Camino for a bit.

This is a book to have many splatters!
